Reduce fan noise in HVAC systems and mitigate aeroacoustic sound propagation

Use HVAC simulation to engineer quieter systems

Estimated Watching Time: 58 minutes


Different colors in this HVAC noise simulation depict how sounds emanate from an HVAC system.

When it comes to designing heating ventilation air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, engineers make every effort to minimize the noise they produce.

The cooling fan generates the most noise, and those sounds radiate into the surrounding area.

Designers and engineers can model and simulate how the sound travels using a combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and numerical aeroacoustics.

Watch this video presentation and find out how leading HVAC system manufacturers use HVAC modeling software to design and build quieter HVAC systems.

Simulate HVAC system noise with 3D HVAC design software

Designers and engineers use HVAC simulation to analyze fan noise in isolation.

Using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and numerical aeroacoustics together delivers a clearer picture of the source of the noise and provides better insight into how the sound travels through the air.

HVAC suppliers and OEMs working to predict and address HVAC noise in the design cycle can benefit from learning how to scale up the overall acoustics engineering of HVAC systems.

People who watch this presentation will learn:

  • How to use source modeling of fan noise
  • How HVAC installation affects the propagation of fan noise
  • How acoustics engineering simulation software works
